Jen takes off her ring after split from Ben

Los Angeles - Jennifer Garner has taken off her wedding ring.

The 43-year-old actress - who recently announced her intention to divorce her husband of ten years, actor Ben Affleck - has been spotted wearing her ring since confirming their separation, but on Wednesday, Jennifer reportedly attended a spin class in Atlanta without it on.

A source explained: "Jennifer kept a low profile. The class was full, but no one bothered her or tried to stop her."

Jennifer is doing everything she can to make their children feel as secure as possible and is putting on a brave face at home.

An insider told PEOPLE magazine: "Her strength is what made her who she is. She has risen up in this situation. It's unbelievable."

The former couple flew to the Bahamas with their family shortly before confirming their separation following months of rumours their marriage was in crisis, and plan to continue living on the same property in the Pacific Palisades, California for the foreseeable future.

The source added: "They will do whatever is needed so their children are happy and well-adjusted."

The pair decided to end their relationship after having a "candid conversation" during which the Gone Girl actor admitted he hadn't been "committed to the marriage in the last few years".

Meanwhile, Ben has been in Atlanta looking after their kids, Violet, nine, Seraphina, six, and Samuel, three, as Jennifer has been shooting her latest movie Miracles From Heaven.

An insider told the New York Post newspaper: "They are trying to make this as normal and amicable as possible for themselves and for the kids.

"He's staying at the same property in Atlanta with Jen and the kids, and he'll remain there until she's done shooting in mid-August."

This comes shortly after a source close to the situation revealed Ben's "biggest fear" is only seeing his children on the weekends.

The Gone Girl star, who was raised by his single mother Christine after she split from his alcoholic father, wants to spend as much time as possible with his three children.

The source said: "Ben wanted children and a family his whole life. He didn't grow up with a present father, so his biggest fear was being the dad that only saw his kids on the weekends. He never wanted that." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
